Mysterious black ring over UK
16-year-old Georgina Heap observed the peculiar phenomenon for three minutes before it disappeared.
The black ring appeared in the sky over Leamington Spa on Friday evening while Georgina was outside playing tennis with her mother.
Grabbing her iPhone she filmed the ring for three minutes before it vanished. Her footage has generated a great deal of interest since appearing online and nobody is quite sure what to make of it.
"It's a truly bizarre image," said former MoD UFO researcher Nick Pope. "It looks like a smoke ring, but I can't see where it could have come from."
Other theories put forward include the suggestion that the ring could either be a swarm of insects or some form of rare meteorological phenomenon. Read more at What is the Black Ring of Leamington Spa? Mysterious object in the sky is captured by girl, 16, on her iPhone
Man found in Oslo with total memory loss
The man, who is in his mid-20s and appears to come from somewhere in Eastern Europe, was found in an industrial area in the east of Oslo in what police described as "a bad condition".
He speaks very good English with an east European accent, understands Czech, Slovak, Polish and Russian, and is calling himself "John Smith" until he recovers memories of his real name.
"The man has no identity papers, and does not remember his name, where he came from, how he ended up in Norway or any other details of his life," the police wrote in their statement.
Oslo police have tried to establish the man's identity for nearly four months, sending photos and fingerprints to East European police forces via Interpol, and searching through lists of missing people.
"We have come to a point in the investigation where we had tried everything without getting anywhere," Sturla Henriksbø from the Oslo police told VG newspaper. "Therefore we are now, in consultation with the man himself, releasing his picture." - TheLocal
Woman ends up in hospital after seeing spirits everywhere
A 23-year-old Malaysian woman is in hospital after she allegedly saw spirits while trying out a so-called ghost-hunting application on her smartphone, Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported.
The woman, known only as Wu, from Hubei, China, claimed to have seen spirits around her when she first tried the app.
When she went to the cemetery with her parents during the Qing Ming festival, she tried the application again.
This time it allegedly showed three spirits by her side, leading her to have sleepless nights for three days. She had to seek medical treatment in a local hospital.
Former beauty queen Angie Cheong Wei Yee from Ipoh has been working hard to provide a bright future for her adopted son in Hong Kong, who is suffering from a heart ailment, Guang Ming Daily reported.
The former Miss Chinatown, who was active in the Hong Kong entertainment industry in the 90s, recently opened a grocery store there, where 10-year-old Hanson is studying at an international school.
She adopted him eight years ago in Beijing.
Cheong, 43, said she decided to move back to Hong Kong to enjoy life with her adopted son.

When his wife, who was seven months pregnant, did not wake him up on Monday, the man was horrified to find her dead in their bedroom, China Press reported.
The night before, the man had slept in the living room while his wife slept in the bedroom.
The 31-year-old woman, who had a hole-in-the-heart when she was born, had undergone surgery as a child.
She was reportedly feeling unwell at 1am but refused a suggestion by her husband to go to a clinic. - The Star
‘I Just Want It to Go Away!’
Something is creepily tickling — and tormenting — guests at a New Jersey hotel, according to residents and owners. And after years of complaints, a team of self-described ghost hunters are claiming they’ve found paranormal evidence inside the establishment.
For years, people have speculated that ghosts might be haunting the historic Hotel Somerset in Somerville, N.J., with stories ranging from mysterious foot and neck tickling in the middle of the night to guests’ shoes being cryptically rearranged.
Curtis Jones, 67, a Vietnam veteran who has lived at Hotel Somerset, the nation’s oldest continuously run hotel, for seven years, claims he’s experienced all three phenomena.
He’s hoping that it will all soon come to an end.
“I just want it to go away!,” Jones, who says he suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, told USA Today.
He’s not the only one who suspects something paranormal might be at play. Tom McCormick, who runs the hotel, called in the Paranormal Diagnostics Group, a group of ghost hunters, to investigate.
McCormick said two additional residents complained about foot tickling years ago in a different room — one in which a resident once died. And he claims that his family, including a young son and his wife, Shannon, have all experienced ghosts on the property, according to USA Today.
“I was getting soda down in the basement, when I heard a woman or a girl whisper to me, ‘Help me,’” Shannon said of a purported experience last year.
They claim their son saw the same little girl later that night.
Ghost hunters Robert McCaffrey and Dave Orloff of the Paranormal Diagnostics Group have investigated the hotel three times of late and they, too, claim to have collected proof of the paranormal, including video of flashes and shadows — and creepy audio recordings.
In one audio clip they claim to hear the name “Evelyn Epright.” According to McCormick’s father, Epright lived in a house behind the hotel, but her home was later torn down in the mid-1960s.
They also claim a medium told them that three children might be haunting the hotel — and that the medium was able to draw an image of Jones’ room without ever seeing it.
She claims “his closet is a vortex of paranormal activity” and that there is “extensive energy” at the foot of his bed, according to the McCaffrey and Orloff.
The hotel’s long history contributes to the notion that spirits might be lurking. Founded in 1748, it has a long lifespan that is intertwined with a murder trial, the Revolutionary War and other noteworthy events.
McCormick claims that five tenants died in the hotel and a sixth committed suicide during his parent’s 40-year ownership of the Hotel Somerset. - The Blaze
